The opportunity to connect with other artists staying here – creatively and socially. Superb surroundings – inspiring/awesome landscape, wonderful walking area – a place to connect with nature – and train station 5 minutes away! Sanquhar intrigues. A small town though with hidden gems, local arts& crafts, sense of community, Charles Jenck’s Multiverse just down the road, the nearby Wanlockhead lead mining museum. There’s ‘magic’ in the air here!
